118 Stocks Withstanding the Correction

On days like today where its a virtual snoozer, it’s a good time to do some research & screening.

With the market correction over 5 weeks long, and plenty of high beta names down 10-20-30% (the S&P 500 down 5.5% in that space) it’s always interesting to look at relative strength. Which names are either making new 52 week highs or showing small losses in a time of market turbulence. If the names are in non-defensive sectors you can often glean a company that institutional buyers want to hold onto – and a potential market leader during the next bounce.

Below I’ve listed 118 names that have a market cap of $300M+, stock price of $10+, and average daily volume of 100K+. They are either at new 52 week highs, or 0-3% below their 52 week high. I’ve sorted it by industry rather than market cap, to see if there are patterns in terms of sub-sector strength. On first glance, outside of the normal defensive stalwarts, I notice quite a few are foreign ADRs. And REITs of all varieties are showing impressive strength. (Before you ask about Netflix, it is down more than 3% as I type – hence not on the list)
